Amidst his recent accomplishments, including his latest role as the antagonist in the highly anticipated Fast X film, Jason Momoa opens up about confronting personal challenges, advocating for change, and forging a new path in his career.
"I'm trying to find the right words, but my character, a chief named Ka'iana, embarks on a mission to a foreign land to rescue a friend. It's like a prison riot, with people dangling and falling from the ceiling. There are musket shots and fires raging all around, chaos ablaze," Momoa enthusiastically describes, reminiscent of Stefon from SNL discussing the hottest action movie on the planet.
"It's a remarkable achievement that we pulled it off without anyone getting hurt. All I ended up with was a bruised lip. Ka'iana is on a mission to liberate enslaved individuals and, for the first time, he witnesses poverty, drugs, and encounters creatures like dogs, rabbits, and peacocks. He experiences the entire world with fresh eyes."
